T be Flower of the Mind. 


May Mb. 1694. 

A Floorer from the ¥ ground hath ay feared , the A ainre 
and Property of which ts never to fade, or die ; for in defer nt 
itfrom on high , which is the Lord , the quickening Spirit from 

T His is the Plant that has put forth it felf, diflinS from the out¬ 
ward Nature in me 5 well knowu it is by its plcafant Sccnr, qua¬ 
lifying with Fragrant Love, fo very fweet, and mild, that it 
hamonifedi the Soul to that degree That it feds no other life, than 2 
Ghoftly Deity \ That is the Root which feeds this Rofie Flower of the 
Mind, with a certain kind of Balfamick'Vettue j thatfo its beauty is of 
a Klufliing frclhncfs always. 

Now herein lieth the greatell of all Myfteries, That under the Covert 
of a mortal Humane form , fuch an anointed Cbtrnh , fhould There live « 
and move, as having the fire-fparkling Eye, that pierccth into the Hea¬ 
vens, there to view , arid fee, what is of its own Kind, and Property , 
transplanted into That upper Region.' for known it is tome, that .Spirits, 
Pure, and Separate from this grofs Earth, may be both with ChriJt the 
Head, and wuh his body of Saints, who in the Heights of Glory are. _ 

Yet mutual Greeting, and Convcrfation allowed may be, as fpringing 
from one Eternal root, and ground, coupled together in Loves.golden 
Chain of EvcTlailing Unity. 

But it is given me to underhand that fuch Saints which are yet in the 
Body, (that is yet Corporeal) they mult be highly fpirited, and much 
eflranged from themfelves, as confidercd in an outward crcaturely Lifcy 
for That part mud be filenced, and fhut up •, when ever the Soul, in this 
Body would hold aCommunion, or fpiricual Conference with the King¬ 
ly Shepherd, and That upper Fold. 

Now from hence it is to be concluded, they mult be High Graduated 
Souls, that are priviledged to come 1 p Here to this Heavenly Court. E- 
very Spirit according to its growth and attainment, fo it will be ranked 
with fuch a* arc above •, each one joined to its like in Heavenly places: 
for fo it will be, whilft in the body of time, and when There from fepa- 
rated ( Oh my Friends, who ever This comes to know ) they will httle

are for any other Society but what is above; for Chtift being Glorified, 
He mightily doth draw pure Spirits to be with him, as their n:oft proper 
Center, and Dwelling-place. 

The body of Sin, and FicClt, hath been indeed a great Impediment to 
fuch Heavenly-minded Souls that in this Liberty of Mind for afpiritual 
Sight would be; but the Mill-ftone of this Earth doth bind, and keep 
them down, fo as they cannot afeend. 

The Qpeftion then is, what muft be done to get free, to hold up 
thisall-dcfirablcCorrefpondency with GOD, and CHRIST, and all 
the Heavenly Family? 

I can give no other Direction , titan what my ftlf have been taught 
In, and in fome degree have put into praflicefo, as whereby 1 have found 
this All-ftcret Pafs, for way) for my Spirit to enter, and abide, in the In¬ 
ward Tabetnade of G O D's delightful Prefence, which is as a forego¬ 
ing Fledge of what I may hope, and expert to take up in, when this 
jny Body fhall break away. 

Therefore that 1 might excite all Holy, well-minded Souls that are 
Tuch Lovers of their Life CHRIST, That they would not be bereaved 
•of his Company during the Time allotted to live in this outward Body: 
,Then let them obferve thefe Rules which I give as my Experience. 

' Firft, layafide all Vexatious, Worldly Matters, that are a Cumber, 

* and Weight upon the Mind, take in nothing that is notabfoliitely Ne- 

* ceflary ; be contented with a little of the World, that thou mayeft 

* have much more of GO D. 

And if poflellcd thou art, of a plenty of theft outward Things, be 
fart to give a Proof of thy Alienation from them, by giving them all 
up as an Offering to the Templc-Euilders, to promote, andtuinifh the 
Inward Sanrtuary, which the Holy, Spiritual-minded Souls are to make 
•up} Therefore to be Encouraged in That, it may be by fuch as do more 
plentifully, Things of this World enjoy. 

And blefs GOD, That they have futh a Pi ire put into their Hands 
as to Honour G O D, and pro[>ogate the Revelation of his Kingdom, by 
fupporting fuch as GOD hath Indowcd, and filled with the Spirit of 
Wifdom, Revelation, and Prophecy ■, with all Purity of Converfation. 

Smelam, it would be a molt fweet feented Sacrifice to G O D, if any, 
there could be found, that were thus fo largely, and well difpofed in 
Mindy that fo, a Sequcflration, and Dedication of devout Spirits, might 
be maintained, for fulfilling the Will of G OD here on Earth, as it is 
in Heaven •, Ecchoing to the Saints in the upper World, in Loving, Pair¬ 
ing,and Admiring, ikying allHoct2ge, and rcmple-Worlhip,mGOD, 
to G O D and the Lamb. 1

I have been , and Rill am, of the fame mird, That if fuch an holy 
convocation could be brought together, in a perfeft Accord, and Onenefs 
of Spirit, a great witncft would be given to it, and mighty thing* 
would iucc«d upon it. But woe, and alas, ( and may therefore a Waif- 
ing be taken up ; that) the pure Spring of Life in Souls, hath been lii. 
Red, and choakcd by theEa' th.

whereby tlicy have orpoitumty to attend th: high and heavenly Calling, 
being they can fubfift, and lire without tire Toil, and Labour, which o- 
thers arc neteflitated to be inmloyed in. Therefore let the Great and 
rich Ones, of this Temporal State, believe and know, it is incumbent 
upon them, ard GOD experts no Icfsfrom them. That they principal¬ 
ly honour oeA <iQ O basJh yvea 

them fuch Liberty, and Command of their own l ime, Highly to prize 
it, and make furc to thcmfelves the Pearl of the Kingdom; for That 
Treafnre may go along withthem into the Heavenly World, when they 
mull leave all that belong* to this Outward. 

Now I liarc a Word given me alfo, for the lower Ranks, that indeed 
may have a more lawful Plea, forwantof Time, and Liberty, being in- 

t aged in Bufinefsthar mud give a Livelihood; and thcrforc they cannot 
e fo much at lcifurc to watt the Motionsof the Heavens. 

To this, theSpiritot CHRIST gives this Caution and Councel. 
Take heed left the Cares for tbe bodily patt do not e3t out the Life , 
and Spirit; and fo bereave it of all that is fpirituaJ-feeding, and doath- 
ing for the Soul: and fo be put by, and excluded from commeniing the 
degrees of the Heavenly Vocation and Calling, and loofe all benefit of 
converfation in Heavenly Places. 

Therefore be watchful, and fuffer not the Outward to julUe out the In¬ 
ward ; Put but one Grain of Faith into thy Stock of outward Things, 
and eye GOD Therein; and the Blelling of Increafe Rial! come on thee: 
for the luftftrall live both Spiritually and Temporally by his Faith. 

We have inlfances of what the Spirit of Faith hath produced, when 
GOD hath been confided in; It hath produced a thoufand fold more 
than all the Study of the Head, and Labour of the Hinds. And as this 
Lilly o£. Faith lhall get up, and free it fclf from the Twifting-ltrings of 
Stnfc which hath bound it. Solomon , in all his Glory (ball not be com¬

They who (hall beborn into This Faith, they need not be thoughtful 
for anv Temporal Thing, for all Eleffings in abundance will be brought 
in.. Therefore labour not Jo much for thru fcnfiir* blvr.rron , but r.tthcr j or

to idt, or d, o- vderettiih to be (loathed. The LORD knew, that by 
the Spirit, and Power of Faith, there Ihould be a Support, and Supply 
of all ncceflary Things. 

But it nay belaid, This kind of Faith, is yet bnt very rarely in any 
one Sprung. 

Well, grant it !b to be for the prefent; yet it is a Troth that there is 
fuch a faith that bath been , and (hall moft fa rely be revived again in 
them, who willing are to die to all That which hath choaked, and Hided, 
(yea bound this Lilly of Faith down. ) 

Now to proceed on to the fecond Rule for Direction for fuch fpiritnal- 
minded Souls, as do defire to be well aeqainted with a life in God , and 
therein to reir. 

As the firft Rule was to difeharge and acquit all unneccffary clogs, and 
weights, extcriourly i fo This, more interiourly ; which is by taking 
ail care to clear sway from the Heart and Mind the Scum that boiled: 
from Corruptible Nature ; from whence Gcncratcth multiplicity of pro- 
faff Imaginations, that no flop can be put to, but as the Spring or the 
Holy-Gholt doth open, and drown. That chaffy duff, which deftleth tile 
Temples bod?. 

Now this skill, the Soul mu(l of the Holy Spirit le3rn, that as faff as 
thepuddled-raatrer of this Kind do rife in the mind, fo immediately 
dowfe, and bath thy fclf in the Springing Pool, where from the Water 
of Life doth bubble up \ for That is our Healing, audit is as near us, as 
live other contrary Source. 

And thus we may keep our Hearts all pure, nnd clearer referred,' to be 
the moft Holy Satiftuary for the rrieff y-Spirit to miniffer iri, and to 
make ready a Holy feperated place for GOD and C H Ik I ST. to maui- 
feft thcmlclves in us. '*■ 

Upon This account, was the Holy Ghoff protnifed, and alfo'gircn; to 
prepare and moke ftraight the crooked ways internally y for Chrift his 
Spiritual Humanity to take up in a pure mind. As John the Eaptift went 
before to prepare, and declare Him to be the Lamb of GOD to take 
away the Si ns of the World; that by John s Miniitry a Reformation and

This is the office of the Spirit. Now hence we do ice ot:r feives loand

makes out from the Treafury cf God's manifold VVifdom. 

Therefore, who would not for fo great a benefit keep their mitrds all 
Vacant, and Pure, for fuch a Comforter to abide with them, who can 
tell us of things that are yet to come, as the time Prcfrnt, and Eter¬ 
nity: and This he doth, and will do frill, for thofe that love, and 
delight in his Company ?

not been for This precious Sealing-gift of This Holy Spirit, 1 mufr

New, and Old \ but the way to obtain this Gift is very coftly ; for the 
Rules preferibed, carry out to fuch a fclf Abnegation, and Denoun- 
ention of a cream rely life in Flelh and carnal Senfe; th2t it is very rare¬ 
ly that any are able to obtain , and retain this precious and holy Anoint¬ 
ing, whereby we come to know the fecret, and deep Things of GOD. 

True it is, This Jewelwill not be found, in common earthly Ground; 
there are feveralmeafures , as I have mentioned , for they that have no 
degree of This Spirit oi Chrift, cannot be his; but if there be fo much 
ofthis Light as doth check, and reprove of Sin, and it be Obeyed, Then 
the Spirit will manifcftly multiply ior Counccl and Comfort; ana fo go 
on to reveal himfclf clearer, ashe finds the Heart giving up to be his pe¬ 
culiar Place of Refidence ; that fo he may keep all in a fanftified Order, 
in preparation for more extraordinary things to be communicated: For 
tlx Sfir it riftth higher, Aid higher, m the Soul it or. f tit d of tn own felf. 

It may be queried, but is there any in this Age of Time, that can give ray 
inlhncc of their being baptifed with the Holy-Gholt,as in thc«f< files days? 

Yea finely,the fucceflion of which hath been witnciied by fomc or otherin 
every ace fmee; although not in the fame manner as with cloven Tongues, 
sad ruining Winds. This vifible Deraonftrationof the Spirit was to have 
today and fo pafs away; and now operates in a more Intrinfical man¬ 
ner and method in Vcfiels fined out thereunto. Therefore what was 
donevifibly, is now more invifible, infpiringami opening as a glowing 
Flame in the Heart, lying there as a live burning Coal, whichis known to 
is to be the true baptizing of the Holy-Gholb which is in prefent feeling; 
sod when ever it is, in its higheft penetrating power, it may a<& forth it 
fclf in miraculous Deeds, and Works, as the prefent occafion may call 
for.- This has been known, and experienced by fome in this Age. 

Then again; another evidence of thcSpirit, is. Internals Gulbf, and 
Breaths of divine Air by which the Soul is often mounted up upon the 
wing of This Word, orP.rcathof the Spirit, and fo gets up to the Hea¬ 
vens, entring into theCcleltial Globe of Eternity, while its outward bo- 
dyiemains in time: This is known to fome. 

For as there was an outward pcrfoncl going up to the viiible Jerufalem

ofth: Pcad,which is now kept the inNcw-Jei ufalcm abort,wnci e tuc Lord 
Chrill in his Spiritual Humanity doth appear, keeping up thcfoleninity 
of That Spiritual Feall, iviih the body of Saints There, and fomc- 
times doth admit ot pure Spirits, that yet in the body of villble Flclh 
are to come up, for to view the llately Order and Government of That 
Feall, and to talle thereof: This is the true citing of the Supper of the 
Lamb, and drinking the Royal Wine of the New-Tefiament with Cluilt 
in his Kingdom, frhich puts an end to all Symbolical Ceremonies. 

Blelling, Joy, and Glory, wc may pronounce to all which Called and 
Invited, to come up to feed upon This Pafcal Lamb. They will never 
care nor delire to go out here, to take upin lower Adminillrations; for 
This i* the Sum and Subtiance of all, to feed upon the Quintcflential Bo¬ 
dy, and pure Blood of the Grape; that as often as it prcllcthit felf our, 
it filleth again, for a continual emptying forth; fo that none that is come 
upheiemay Third any more. 

This is the True Feall of Tabernacles which I have here deferibed to 
you; for no one can go up here without putting on their Tabcrnacle- 
Body, which is the flaming Heart of the Holy-Ghod. 

But now metbinks, I hear fomefay at the Reading of 7 hit, Oh.' You 
have mentioned a high and lofty State, which is as a new thing that hath 
not been declared; as that in this prefent Life there ihould be found any 
to afeend to the New-Jerufalem, to feall and worlhip GOD There t 
This, you will fay belongs to th zEnochian Lift •, butThat Age of the World 
is not yet come, fo as to know a Tranllated State. We grant it, that it 
i* not common, only peculiar tofome, that in Enoch’s Spirit areraifed 
to walk with G O D, and fo are taken upin the Spirit wholly. * But 
‘ we may hope This day of the Spirit is coning on, whereby it (hall be 

* known more univerfally; in the which Angelical Spirits lhall afeend, 

* and That Divine Principle fliall open, that now hath been fo 

* long fhut up: Then you will know aNew-flateof Living, that you ne-

Now This I find is to be taken in a two fold Sc rile, astoThat part 
which is to appear before G O D in Sion. The firlt is, while yet in the 
body of Corporiery, The fcco.nd is, when ftept out of it, fo, as nc 
more to return again to it. Now hence I, ( yet not i ) but the Spirit of 
myjESUS) fhall lead you on to the firft p3rr, knowing well the way, 
and hare taken the mcafures thereof by the Mcafuring-Linc in the Hand 
of an Angel: unaccountable to any but the Travellers thereto. 

Some heads, and proportions 1 fhall lay down in order hereunto, that 
oar Fellow-Travellers may not fail to find fure footing. 

The Firjl is , what Preparation , or Qualification will be requifite for 
fach intended Travellers. 

Secondly , What kind, or manner of way. 

Thirdly , The feveral Stages, or Rcfts, by the way. 

Fourthly, Their arrival to This City of G O D. 

And YtfrMy ,The Welcome^nd Entertainment the Travellers meets vrjth 
There, from all the Great AlTembly of Mount Sion: (the Court of COD) 

Firjl, then, it is to be conlidered whsc this Traveller mull be; 

Nota-Grofs, tangible Body, but a Spirit that mult thus take np£- 
nxh'i Walks, feparated, and tranflated from a Ttntjlul Life to a Ce- 
kfiial : This is our Spiritual-traveller's firft alteration ( an Earthly Crca» 
Cure turn’d into a Spiritual. ) 

And now wc come to enter upon the way, which looked) at Grit onfet, 
as the Valley of Baca that opened) the Floodgate of Tecrs, and being 
now fo environed with the Light of the Spirit, that hath difeo-ered to it, 
an inward, and outward Deformity, degraded of its Angelical Image 
by the toot of Sin in nature fpringing y fo that this Mourning ana 
Sorrow, not to be repented of. And while in this full beginning-way, 
the Soul will have many Enemies to encounter withal, and Temptations 
from within, and without, and the more atlaults will come bccaute it is 
torendaway, and leave the Walks of This Evil World, and to betake it 
felftoThis New and Living-way. But let not our fellow travellers be 
difeouraged, but guild up, and go forward, this days journey will have 
it: end, though it may go heavily cn, this fir ft day y the itcor.d will 
bemorelightfome and refrcfliing if it do but hold out this Probation, 
and wrcftlc it out a: Jacob did. 

Turn the Angels of GOD will meet the weary Traveller, and ac¬ 
company it throughout its way. 

There are (even Angels (or they may he called (even Spirits) that are 
appointed to be the Guard of the travelling Soul, whilft in this danger¬

ous way. I (hall namcthem, as 1 my fdf lave found them2 Fortitude cf 
Strength in a'.l my Journey on to this* very Day: So it may be to the 
Undertakers that v.iU pvecitily keep to ibis PerfeA- way. 

The firft of thefe Seven qer.lilying Spirits, and Power?, for a Graft!, 
is KoJy, Pahivc-Patier.ce; Thu is an ahlolctc ncccflary Ccirrcnion in 
this way. No holding out, without the Indotvtncnt of a Patient Mind, 
that ir,ay hold out againfc all Contradiction*; ar.d v.Lat will make cfitr 
to pull down from this High, and Heavenly Walk. 

The fecond is, Deep, or .Meek Humility, keeping low, ar.d humble; 
for That feenres th.c T raveller: For G O li hath great Refpefl for a soul 
tliat vvalkcth fcftly, and fleadily. 

The thitd Qualification, is a Lively Hope, which is as an Eye within the 
Soul carrying a Profpsflof the Heavenly Sion, That mightily ftrcrgthens 
it, and bears it up. 

Fourthly, aSoper-Celeftial Wifdom , that directs, manages, and go¬ 
verns the Soul, as to the fitted times, and feafons for Journeying on ; 
that is, when to flop, and when to remove on forward, as the mattev 
(ball require. 

The fifth is the Spirit of Fairh *, This is a mod Excellent Companion 
that carrieih through all Difficulties , becaufe it is the Evidence of Ob¬ 
jects of things in the H avens, not vilibly feen. It is Wings that 
makes the Soul fly fo High, that nothing of the crawling Earth worms 
can reach, to moled, or hurt it. 

The fixthj Divine Power, that attends the Traveller, is, the Live- 
Coal of flaming-Love, that fo vehemently Longeth to arrive to thevi- 
fional Fruition of G O D, and CHRIST, with all the glorified Train 
of Blcfled, and Perfect Spirits. This Love-Gale, is fo Mighty Arons', 
that it makes the Soul pull up, and run fwiftly in this Race, 

Seventhly, That which doth mod complcat this Holy Guard, is, Im¬ 
pregnable Strength, and Power ; for if G O D did rot take care to lof¬ 
tily the travelling Soul with Lis own Invincible drength, there were 
no poflibiliry to reach this Mai k of the Ncw-Jcrufalcm-State ; but Clirid 
the Lord, takes rood care, and ivi,J r.ot omit to provide Mcnitfor.-drcngth 
for accompihhiiig this Heavenly Journey; for Chrilt, the Lord, lcng- 
cth more to fee the Soul-trateller f-.. .iy landed in his own Bofomcf l ove,- 

than the Souls define is to appear before him •• So by this mutual Love-A¬ 
greement, the Evcrlading Knot of Marriage-Union will be tyed, witch 
there once it is arrived. 

Now then, by this time you fee what the Company is, that will fry- 
r$rt the Soul in itsTiavei', but tire Chief of aJI is cLri/t hr Sprit, i!j»~

Tht f.cor.d Proportion is*, what Stages, orRefb, tint may be allow¬ 
ed the wear y Ti avciicr to take up in a wliil e, which ate Three. 

This fccond Days Journey is more cafy, and refrcfhing, the Walks 
tires a fv/cct Smell, from the Evangelical Piomifcs, giving aflurance 
by the Atoning blood of the Covenant, that all Guilt of Sin is o'ulit:- 
uted, whereby tltt Soul is Incouraged and Comforted. 

but from this it pllcth on to a Second Reft, which is, the Record, 
and Seal of the Spirit ■, That which was now from the General Piomifcs 
( Literal) is not to be (laid in. Chrift in Flelh withdraws, and will be 
known no more in That Figure, bat in the Ai-filing Porter , and Prefeuet 
cf Spirit, whereby ihe Soul fhall know him in Hcr-lelf: So He does then 
become Salvation to the purpofe. 

No outward Application of Chrift, is of That Availance, at a Chrift 
within, vtho pottrt in Hit Saving. Name at Ofit mem , which performs tire 
Cure of the lapfed State of the Soul, bccaufc an inward Difeafe mull 
have an Intrinfical Medicine, that may penetrate through the Inward 
Parts, that all may be made whole. 

This is the intended Redemption by Chrift, and nothing lefs will fet 
the Soul to Rights again , fo as to give it Boldncfs to come to appear be¬ 
fore That great Aflembly of Perfect-Spirits in Mount Sions-Kingdora. 

Now we proceed to the third Reft , which is yet more plealanr, be- 
caufc it is Paradilical. 

As the Travel hr paflech through this Country, there arc various, de- 
lightfal Entertainments, Mniflrwg Angelt, and Spirits, that in Thit Di¬ 
vine Principle do meet the SouL 

There alfoare the Shaw's Walks, adorned with the Spicy-Beds, that 
gives forth their Ravilhing Odours. 

This fometimes opens in the Soul, with Stveet.Tajiei , and Refusing 
Draught j for the Godhead DiiFufcth it fclf through All oi That Climate, 
foas many Spirits arc made vigorous, and Joyful, knowing nothing but 
an All-fillingSweetnefs, all calm, and Hill in the mind tree from tic 
terrifying Cares and Combuftions of this World (though in it) yet for¬ 
gotten by it, at leaft during the time it is round befet, with this Light, 
and Heavenly Paradife; fo that the Soul is afraid to be difturbed, as to 
the lower Defeent into mortal things again. 

Now we come to the third particular, which is the laft remove that 
bringeth up to That Mount-Sion, which is mentioned in (he Hebrews.

Myriads of Angels that iha’.l their Trcmpcts oi joy foe ad, a: the Lamb, 
aadBrides-Nuptul-Dav and Marrisge-Feaft. 

So Ends thefe Hony-Drops from the Mouth of our dear Immanuel.* 

Now by all this which hath been declared, you mov fee the B'ciTetl 
Mix of an unwearied,ar.d Faithful Traveller to theCity of oar God, which 
may Invite nnd.MIure fuch as have not yet ftt tltcir foot inThis way ;ac J for 
them which have, to make the fame projects, w hich will requite a tho- 
fand times over the Lofs, and pains here fuftained in the way. 

.Oh ye that arc Friends and Lovers of this way, and would an ire to 
be Fellow-Citizens in the Court above with God and Chrift, and cite nu¬ 
merous Company of Spirits, Pure, ar.d Glorious There -, give me leave 
before 1 conclude,to commend thefe following Motives for inconragement 
tofet forward, and go ftviftlv on in this Path of Life. 

The Fit ft Motive is a full allbrancc of all Love-Acceptance, with 
Dear Embraces, and moll free Communications j all Ve ts, and Ears 
taken away, thy Lord Chrift ’ this Mount will (hew Himfelf, ar.d 
talk with thee as God did with Uofet -. Only thou mull put off thy Shoes, 
becaufe it is holy Ground you will tvalk upon: as much as to fay, come 
Here, all Bare Pare, and Clear, leave ail at the foot of the Mo hi., 'fat 
would con t raft of the worlds Earthly Dull ■, then (hall you know, hear, 
and fee. That, which is fo ravifliing for the feeding of all yon divine 
Stefa, that you will fay. It is good to Tabernacle Here; ana fo it may 
be permitted, for fo long time as you can abidecloathcd with the Trans¬ 
figured Robe of the Spirit of Chrift , but That will be but at certain 
times and feafons ■, but ic will be enough to know fuch a thing as This is, 
and yet in the Body of Corporiety. 

Now then the fecond Motive is, that Hereby, It is made acquainted 
with This Heavenly Country, before it quite ieaveth its Mortality in 
this low World; it isan high, and extraordinary Priviledge, to fee, and 
know its place, and company beforehand-, for our Lord Chrift is very 
free to (hew unto the fpiritual-minded, the Principalities, and Dominions, 
and Powers in his Kingdom, and to give a good ad'urancc of bein^ Join- 
Heirs with bim of the'fame Glory, as you may fee John 17, and As”>. 8. 
all this to confirm, what,in every fuceeeding Age, may be as a frcih feai'd 
Evidence, given forth by the moft Holy Spirit. 

Oh who wouldnotamong theNembrrof thelefeardO^sbe? Sore 
it is worth foriaking, and denying whatever of this Temporal-Rate of 
Life, that may obflroft or be any Impediment, to put by, and hinder its

by an Experienced Traveller dctciibcd. 

Now one retire move is This, that by puting on This Habit of the 
Spirit, v. hereby it •".ay be furniilred with -bmewhai of thofc Amient gift, 
and Powers, which went forth from the Lord Guilt, and the Apoflks 
in their day : which renewed ( nwft certainly ) will be, as a fore-runner, 
that the Reign cl Chrift upon the Earih in his Saints is drawing very 
near; for mere mighty and miraculous Tower mult be given in This 
Age, to go forth as a prtkduim. 

The great Cay of Chrift's Appearance in the World draweth near; and 
for This End fuch Deep and Inwaid tliirgs are revealed beforehand to 
make ready an Efpoufca Bride, that may be found all fair and clear with¬ 
out bicniifh; for fuch a Church, Chrift muft have prepared to Entertain 
him upon this Earth. Of this 1 haveinlargcd upon in my other Treatife 

Therefore as many as this Day arc big with an Expectation of Chrift 
in bis Kingdom appearing, to all fuch lovers , and waiters fork: L.ct

Thus l have given yon a true, and fi.iglc account of \vh2t i:i n:y Spi- 
ritual Travels 1 have feen, known, and underftood, by being sdroitre 
intoThat Heavenly Coutt, at certain times and leafors^andfliall leave 
this livingTcllimony to the Spiritual-minded, hereof to judge: For 
no other can receive, cr fathom this deep Wifdom of Gcd. 1 flia'J on- 
ly leave This Caution and Advice, asmv concluding cart. 

The Caution is to thofe, who would of the Firic Re.urrc.Lion-Fold of 
ChriXt be ( as mentioned of hath Here been ) that they do not ca vil , 
and difputc the Holy Spirit away from them, by their doub tai Jcaloufv, 
concerning the Kriglitnefs of its Riling , in the Pure inHeait; andfb 
thereby may prevent themfehes of This moll valuable, and precious 
Gift, wkoonly is the true Intelligencer of Goil'sMind, and the Break¬ 
er open of the Sealed Trcafurcs, that arc of That weighty Import, that 
a Soul, that hath found, the Good , and Swcetncfshcre, will fling all 
Impediments away ; that hinder its manifeftetion , and operation in 
the Mind. 

But it maybe objected, there arc many deluded Spirits that pretend 
they are of God ; Therefore it may admit of a Doubtfulnefs, andan 
Enquiry to know the Right Spirit. 

True it is, This may "well be granted, to try the Spirits; but then it 
mult bebyfuch as arc of the true Spirit, of found Judgment, and Di fl¬ 
ee™ in g, that can thctnfelves give a Proof that they Here li ve, and do 
walk in Chrilt his Spirit: And that you may know where This your A- 
nointing is poured forth, bv the Fruits that fuch bring forth; which 
renders another kind of Luc, than can be imitated by a falfc Migu •, 
who may, and do go forth with Erroneous Alarms, and Empty Sounds •, 
which is to be Lamented, and Mourned for, that it isat thij Diy fo fre¬ 
quent ; which fulfilled the Scripture that Thus it will be, as a fore¬ 
runner ofChriftthe Lord's drawing near; and that the ends of the 
World are upon us. But nevcrthclcfs there is a Spirit of Truth, that 
according to Chriit's Promife, is, and will be, plcntcouily poured forth •, 
alfoinThis latter Age, tho‘ permitted, is the falfc, and mised-fpiriud, 
which is a ddign of the Adverfary to nullify, and make void what is front 
the true Spirit of Chrifh 

But let not This flagger, or baffle us out of our Right to aroitionin 
this blelfed Spirit ; but let ic put you upon an Earncli: fcckirg, ard a 
molt watchful Survey what Spirits enter you to fupprcU motions fo rca» 
dy, and numerous; all which bring them up to the Throne in an humble 
Scrupulotity that the Lord in the Spirit, may give forthright Judgment,

thus render, and fearful, of being mifgcided •, you will befealtd, or 
have this Witnefs-Scal, that foall agree with the Record in Heaven, and 
the Scripture Record Here upon the Earth, whereby you will be fetlcd, 
and eftablifhedupona furc Eoundation, in This foaking, and perilous 
Time, wherein, fas it is faid in Daniel) many lhall run to and fro, to 
the Low Here, and Low There, by which that will be tried. 

But fo far as I am made acquainted with the Mind of Clirill, I can¬ 
not but give my Judgment, that it is more fafe, for each one in His own 
Lot, and Pitchcd-7 ent of the Spirit in themfelvcs, for to abide till the 
Seventh Angel (hall the Right and True Trumpet found ; Then the right 
gathering oi" Eagle-Spirits, where thclHight Eodv of Glory, will through 
all Clouds appear \ and as the Ever lading San, Thine forth at once to b;

Firmament y fo This Son in the one InviCble Element lhall from Himfelf 
enlighten the whole Earth -, that, asDcres, they mayfiy to their Ever- 
laiting Sabbath of Reft. 

Even lo let us be found waiting for This blefled and glorious Appear¬ 
ing of our Mighty God and Saviour, in the which Mortality foil be 
fwallowed up of Immortality; Even fo y Come Ijrdfefiu quickly ( filth 
the Spirit of thcB'ide, who is making her felf ready to come to the 
Marnage-S-ppcr of the Lamb) where ia Spirit I do beforehand fee the 
Feaft of Toy, and Melody that prepared is. ’ 

Therefore my Iaft concluding Word and Prayer is, that you may ail 
upon your Wacch-tower keep, and be careful that you let not any thing 
or This Worldly Stuff make voa foil into a Deadly and Dangerous 
Sleep j and fo be prevented of a’ prcfcr.t po.Teffion of Thofe Ineffable Fe¬ 
licities and Sweet Immunities, that in Til* little Volume is made men¬ 
tion of. In the which Hope, that to whom .'his that is written Here, is 
and (hall come, may Caution, and Excitement be, toGirdupdofe, and 
remember to keep unfpotted from This World: And fo you will have 
right to cat of the tree of Life. So farewel.

Thu? is this Holy and Heavenly Aileaibly Imploycd and Excrcifcd with 
all variety of Motion tending to a Divine Adoration to the Rock Eter¬ 
nal, which docs multiply amonglt them mofc Amazing, and renewed 
Wonders, which gives perpetual Matter to renew Love-Admirations. 
So that I was given to underltand, that in this World was no collation of 
Spiritual Vocation; for out of God's infinite Depth 3nd Folncfs fhould 
Matter ftill renew, and alfo with Power be endowed, as fixed in the Hu¬ 
mility, all skilfuily, and learnedly to aft and do after the manner and 
way of God their Life Root; and Being fubjefted always to the Laws of 
of this New World and Kingdom. 

But Liberty is granted to many of this holy order that of the higheft 
Saintfhip are to communicatc to them who arc not yet come up to their 
degree, they may help them much in order to the bringing thefe their 
Fellow-Members higher up, the great Saints will much delight in this 
Office and Service to their Fellow-Members; for their Joy cannot he 
compleatcd until all come up nnto the Unity of Love, in a pure Dei- 

Now to make out this, there was (hewn to me fomc chief ones in

to pour forth for Annointing and Healing; and Peter , with fomc of his

But it may be asked how, and after what W2y dots Spirits accom¬ 
pany Souls here that are Spiritual? Is it by Apparition, or com-min¬ 
gling by Spirit? in aufwer hereunto, according to my prefent mcafure 
ar.d experience I find it very rare in this latter Age that they vifit Souls 
by vifibJe Apparition, (though fometimes they may) as Mofes and Ettas 
appeared to the LordChrift, firce whofe Afcention all of this kind is 
tranfafled more Invifibleand Eflential, by pafl'ng in the way of a Spirit, 
and having, and influencing our Souls, through which there is a Tweet 
congruity, and a. reciprocal Love, which is alfo in our Spirits to¬ 
wards them, that hereby they often draw up to them our more Su- 
periour Angel to be in Heavenly Places with them, being very affable 
and friendly to (hew their Princely Thrones, and their delightful folaces 
and enjoyments they have from the perpetual motion of thiTriune-Deity. 
Now as any Soul here below do find Chrilt their Root of Love in them, 
as their true Original, for fccuring their Love, firft in the eternal Fa’ 
ther, and Spirit in Chrilt the Lord, then molt cafily may we, without 
being guilty of Spiritual Idolatry in this, pay a veneration of Love, and 
high refpeft to thefe great Potentates, that have Power to befriend us 
opon many Accounts, tliat we may need their affiftance. For during the 
time of our Probation in this Life, fo it is altogether expedient that we 
get acquaintance with the Servants in this high and Heavenly Court, for 
they may do us many KindnefTes, as they are in Offices of great truftfroir 
their head Prince and Ring} it is made known to me, that holy and good 
Souls have lolt much as to the knowledge of Divine Arts, and Holy 
Skillfulnefs to do and ait forth the wonders of the heavenly Power in 
manifold Wifdom, as Chrilt, Mofes and Elias, and the Apoftles in 
their day did. , • 

Now it may be demanded, what in Scripture have you to authorize 
this Aflertion, or Revelation?

this high and heavenly Calling, which may anfwer to the Kingdom of - 
the Saints in the upper World, which are the gifts which have been 
much loft, and have had their ceffation. among the Saints in thefe late 
Ages, but now the Virgin Mother calleth upon her Children to be 
looking after the rclloration of them, that, fo they may be employed 
and exercifed in the works that Chrift the Lord fpeak of, H’.ould fol¬ 
low thofc who did believe in him, which are to to be the fealing Vit- 
nefs of the Holy Gholfs coming, .and going • forth in afting Powers 
through Mortals: A T ow it may be asked what are thefe Gifts that are 
fo needful and proper to Wifdoms Children.. 

The fivft is the Tcftimony of Jefus the Lord, which is the gift of 
Prophefy, which is of very great ula and fcrvice to the Church hereon 
Earth, to have a forefight and knowledge of what things arc yet to 
come, i hat all may be warned who are the Friends of the Bridegroom 
to make ready for his Kingdom and Appearance, which nowin very 
deed is knocking at our Doors- Bleficd arc them that underiland 
the voice of Prophecy, and have it in thcmfelves. 

The fecond Gift is to have the Gift of Revelation - opened as a fpring 
that flows with Heavenly Doctrine fora true Tcacbing-Miniftry to go 
forth with, to give feeding from a frefa Pafture, which hath not - n de- 
Sled by nnwafhed Feet •, the Holy Spirit do now in fomc foretell fuihPrin- 
cipai Shepherds are now to ftand in this Latter Day upon th: Earth, that 
ftall not freak from Littcral Tradition, but from the Revelation of the 
Holy-Anointing, the pure, and molt excellent words of Wifdom,-which 
will notbeintnc weaknefsof the LcHer, but in the ftrengthand powet 
df the Spirit fo made known.' 

The tnird is thc Gift • of Vifion , which is not by light of the mortal 
Eye, for that is too grofs to fee'Spiritual Objefts. Now.todefcribe the 
moO fore and right kind cf vifion, isto have Eyes withirr fixed in the 
heat; a bright and clear Underlhnding, through this Organ of light,

of Spangling*L : ght. What the eye of the Spirit and Mind doth Here 
fee, may well draw, and efifedt the Heart abundantly. 

Now to proceed to the fourth Gift, which is the Key that openeth the 
Kingdom of the Power y which being endowed with, do roe-work with 
the Powers in Heavenly Places, for binding, and loofning, Hunting up, 
and opening; which Power will be granted for to aft, and do might y, 
and marvellous Wonders, according to what by the Saints in former A- 
ges have been carried forth in this World to do. And fure, fuch is the 
prefent Time and Age which we now live in, that do call for Greater and 
more marvellous Works, than yet have been done. Seeing that the Con* 
fufions and dill relies throughout all Nations look feydreadful upon us,that 
all Need there is of an E/W/s-Spirit toarife up nmongftus, that may 
turn the Hearts of Fathers to Childien, and pour out Oil for Reconcile¬ 
ment, and healing the bleeding Wounds of Wars and Dhillons, kind¬ 
led up into a Flame through all Nations, which only the flrong impow- 
ered Angels that are filled with Spirit of Anointing , lhall in this Latte- 
Day rife, for the quieting thefe North-Winds, that from thefe Tem- 
pelcuous Seas of this World do fo furioEfly blow ■, for it is feen that Deli¬ 
verances to this Nation, will not by Carnal Weapons of Slaughter be ef- 
foftcd.but by the lifting up of the Standard of God’s Spirit of Power onl\. 
Now for the coming forth of which Power we are looking and halloing 
for, in order to the making way for that Kingdom of Peace and Love, 
that mull over the whole Earth fpread; Even fo, Come Lord Jefus, to 
reign on the Earth in thy Saints powerfully. 

The fifth Gift is, thelayingon of Hands'hy fuch as are P.aptifed with 
theHoly-Ghoft, which being filled with, may convey, and let into, fuch 
prepared Souls which have waited for it; they may Hereof partake, and 
be infpired from fuch a virtual fiery Touch , andthcrcfiom be fo highly 
Illuminated and Deified, as to be made New Creatures in very deed. 
Fromthis Ruby TindtmingDyc, a God-like Purity and Power,may fed* 
denly arife, to Anatomize, and burn up the grofs, corrupt, and earth* 
ly part. 

For we doeeperimentallyfind, that all Spiritual Medicines are too 
fhort and weak, for the rooting out the Venom of Sin, till the Holy- 
Gholt do enter in to refine, and purify the VefTcl within, which may up¬ 
on fomecocne in more immediately, by God’s own Hand 5 and then a-

G cat, how Wonhy, is thi»Gift, being the Root and Spring from whence 
all miraculous Works, both inward and outward , do proceed. 

Now from this Holy Anointing the Healing-Gift may alfofin ing, for 
the curing of all bodily Infirmities; for as much as the Mortal Form and

thereupon painful Difeafesdo breed; yet thisofren helped hath been, 
and Cures have been performed upon the impotent Body , by the Omni- 

E of th» Holy-Ghoft, moving through Mortal Creatures: as we 
vc numerous inftanccs both in the Old and New-Yeftamenc, and alfo 
linccChrift and the Apoftlcs, by Saints of a Idler Degree, who have 
been ufeful to thofe upon Sick and Dying Beds, who have been railed up 
inoft miiaculoully. And this Power will ftill attend to the Worlds end,

Love-Pity to their Fellow-members, may much rdcafe, and help in

any Cveatnrely Will: The Apoftlcs themfelves could not ait it forth 
upon the Sick, but as the Holy-Ghoft moved upon them ; neither can a-

Pool within them, which watching to Healing-waters, may flow foith'

Highly blcITcd are thofe that fhall arrive hereunto. 

By all thefe I fee the Day of Love is breaking out, to 

compafs the whole Earth, and Chrift will no longer a Stranger be; for 
fo he doth Prophefy in me, That in the Holy-Ghoft, he will in this La ft 
Age of the World more wonderfully appear; therefore I arg preffd in 
Spirit to Excite all that love, and longcth for to fee, feel, and know Him, 
as a PrefentCounfcllor, and Comforter, that they would thus prepare

Reign over all That of the Earthly Life, as fo redeemed by Thee, I hou

*A Toft-Script. 

Being 4 Qneftion put to the Author ; which is this, viz. 

^ /^OD, being ft> Pure, Holy, and Good inHimfclf; How comes 
Vi Evil and Sin to be awakened, fmcc God is the Original, front 
whence All Created Beings have proceeded ? As ( now ) both Angels, 
and all Rational Creatures arc intefted therewith all. 

Afcthis was a.ifwercd privately, fo it is thought oeceflary and fcrvice- 
able ( for the publich Sattsfadlion o( All in General ) to he incerted Here, 
being of a weighty Concern for to be Rcfolvcdin, ( which is not from 
the Reach of Man’f Knowledge or VVifdom, but from the Revelation of 
the Spirit of Chrift ( fo given in, and in This wife ope ted ) viz. 

A. That theGreat and Mighty God and Creatour, had all Principles 
and Centers, both of Light and Darknefs inHimfelfj with Good and 
Evil, Death and Life. But all of Tiiefe (tho feeming contrary ) were 
bounded in Unity and Harmony { So that the Darknefs did not mingle, 
to Eedips the Light; Nor the Evil to leflenand dimiailh the Good Or 
the Death to be hurtful to the Life. 

The Divine h'ifdom kept sill in their PUee And Stut ion Vnvioltu ed in Him -

tired from their Creator} All Ertences, both in to; Light, and in the 
Darknefs, and were very Noble, Potent, and Great. But being (now) 
Diftinff, and apart from their Original Root (The Being of God ) 
They found a Power in themlelvcj to awaken what Principles or Eflcnce 
they would ((landing in a Free-Liberty , cither to tii: Good, or to the 
Evil) But not bein’ watchful, to keep All in our Bounds in s meek 
Humility i A Sinful diforder brake forth, and the Liuiftrian .Spirits got 
againft the Creator, who, (hereupon) turned them out of the Pure- 
Angelical Principles, fo as they muft remain Apoflates from God, till 
their Number of Punifliment lhall be finidied. Now, from hence came 
the Infection of All Mankind. Thefc Fall’n-Angels envying That New, 
and Hea/enly Image. For God, after This, made, aad brought forth 
(to Rrplcnilh, and fill up the void and empty Spaces of the Lighc 
World) Man, whom he had Created in their Room: Upon which they 
did Couipire, how they might involve This New-Created Being, in the 
fame Fa ft of Oifobedicnce with thcmfclvcs, for they wcrcSubtlc-Know- 
ing-Spirlts, and undet flood better than Adam , of what Conliftcncy of 
Principles He Rood in ■, And that (through Temptation fet on) the hid¬ 
den Etlence of Evil might b: awaken'd in Him; For He wasEflenccd both 
in the Good and Evil i andfo, became more easily corrupted and defiled. 

Thus we give the Enquirer an Anfwer to thcQueftion. Hot Sin at 
firft (*mt in. Now it remains to let you know* How this Poy fon of Si.i (that 
hath infefted All of Pollcrity) fliill b: allayed and expell'd Tho 

original Cure hereof, is fo known, that luccd not fet That forth, being 
generally believed tliat Chriil came in the Flelh to be a Propitiation for 
the Sins committed in the Flelh. 

Bpt now a deeper Thing than This I hare to declare and make known 
as Thus. Wc know all Outward-Births have been conceived in Sin - , And 
yet fomewhat of Good (from the Original Root of Nature) Rnh there¬ 
from (ineveryone) fprung forth. Now know andconiider, there is no 
other way to make a Perfevt Cure, bat by taking the Sting of Sin out t 
and that by another Birth conceived within the So jI ( which is Chrift the 
< 2 pickning-Spirit ) (that which is a Sinlcfs Birth:) And as that groweth 
up,and becomes ftrong in Spirit, the Sinful Part wythers and dies away. 
Thus Chrift thcGod-niin works out Sin within th: Properties of Fall’n- 
Nature, Andfo,; For that trbichit 
thus barn of Cod, overcome the lflorid, t Ep. ofjtkn, Cbtf. z.
